Can't obtain an actual IP address.No DCHP&DNS

September 9, 2010 at 16:16:16
Specs: Windows XP, 1.60 GHz, 2 GB
Running XP and cannot obtain an actual IP address nor detect DHCP and DNS-I keep being assigned a private IP which is also the the same addy as the Default Gateway. I do not have a router. I've reinstalled drivers, then hit up ipconfig: DNS released, renewed,flushed and registered.Used WinsockXPFix and that was no help either. I ping'ed 127.0.0.1 and got the same successful feedback as my other laptop which is running 7 and doing great: 0% loss.
I'm now I'm at a loss. Any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated! Again, I do not have a router. I have Comcast cable and never once had an issue switching the cable back and forth. Thanks!

"IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : Yes"

you only have one nic. so what did you do to enable routing?

Does the other laptop connect successfully or do both not connect?

I have ethernet and an internal wireless which I rarely use.Both came with the system I made no changes or upgrades. I did nothing to enable it.
My other laptop works great and is having no IP conflicts or difficulty going online at all

Just cleared my ARP cache and still no luck
Tried to renew again and got the message unable to connect to your DHCP server. what a shock!
Starting to think my NIC might be shot but any input for an alternative option to try is appreciated.Thanks.
